Wow, all for taking a bit of Coke?

 

Good.  Sprinters get banned for life for taking illegal substances and, should they appeal, have to overcome massive obstacles to get their career back on track.

 

If you are caught with drugs in your system, you should be banned for life.  No exceptions.  Your club should then be free to terminate your contract and seek compensation for their loss (i.e. due what is essentially a X year employment contract at a premium, of which they will not be able to benefit now that the player has been banned for the remainder of the contract).

In a sporting sense, coke is a lot better than what numerous sportsmen get away with.

Morally, yes, but an illegal substance is an illegal substance.

 

Too many sportsmen (and women) get away with piddly little bans.  It is about time that they are hit where it hurts, which unfortunately nowadays is their wallet.

 

As an aside, it is the same with FA-imposed bans for talking out of line in interviews etc.  Why on earth would someone hold their tongue when they know that the FA will *only* impose a £10K fine for it.  It is a tenth of a week's wages for some footballers.  If the FA started imposing massive fines, players would soon shut their gobs.

He'll get off with paying them a tenner a week or something like that.

 

Good point, he'll probably consolidate all of his existing debts into one easy to maintain weekly payment.

How does that work? Chelsea got money for him anyway.

 

Breach of contract.  Despite Chelski selling him, they pursued him for (among other things) loss of potential future transfer fee (i.e. if he became the world's best player and his value rocketed).  Quite a few elements would have been considered when quantifying Chelsea's loss. 

 

In any situation such as this one, the non-defaulting party (Chelsea) is under a duty to mitigate (essentially to minimise  as much as possible) their loss.  Chelsea mitigated their loss by making some money back on Mutu.  They were therefore free to pursue him for the rest.

So someone decided he was potentially going to earn Chelsea over £20m? In fact, take his wages into account, which they saved on, that's almost like saying the potential sale could have been £30m!!

There will be a massive calculation knocking about somewhere, which we will never see, which will consider things like effect of sponsorship, league place that year (if he were the top scorer for instance, his presence would have been missed and it is foreseeable that it could have made a difference to Chelsea's league position = lesser position equals less money) etc.

 

What you have to keep in mind is that this saga has gone on for years.  It is highly likely that a large chunk of the compensation will be paid to Chelsea in consideration of their legal fees (edit:  it is a high six figure sum, accordingly to SkySports.com).

 

Also, compensation will have been calculated according to the value of the remaining period of Mutu's contract.
